Can I find apartments with individual leases?

Individual leases are most common in college areas, so communities near the colleges and universities in the city would be most likely to have individual leases. This option is most useful when you know you will have a roommate, but don't want to depend on them to pay their part of the rent, or be responsible for their damages. It can also come in handy if you will be utilizing roommate matching, and don't know the person before you move in.
